Tall Stories is delighted to be premiering its new inclusive version of The Gruffalo, incorporating British Sign Language and visual storytelling, ensuring the much-loved tale can be enjoyed by everyone.

Join Mouse on a daring adventure through the deep, dark wood in Tall Stories magical, musical adaptation of the classic picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

Searching for hazelnuts, Mouse meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl, and the high-spirited Snake. Will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo save Mouse from ending up as dinner for these hungry woodland creatures? After all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there?
